Crooked River - June 14th, 2008
supplied by: Fly and Field Outfitters
FISHING: Good
The Crooked is stable at 240 cfs.  Fishing has been good, with some nice rainbows showing up in the catch.  Not a whole lot of dry fly activity going on, but nymphing with tiny flies (sizes 18-22) has been fairly productive.  There is still a fair amount of spawning going on up near Bowman Dam.  Please be aware and avoid fishing to these trout or walking through redds!

Crooked River - June 14th, 2008
supplied by: The Flyfishers Place
FISHING: Good
River levels have finally leved off here and the river is in good shape.

Reports are good on the Crooked for trout and whitefish.  Take advantage now while the weather is still relatively cool, once August hits the 100 degree temps can slow things down.

Scuds are the mainstay... drop a small midge-like nymph below it and hit the riffles and pools.  Standard nymphs work well too.

On top look for good caddis hatches, BWOs, and assorted attractors like adams and small stimulators.

It is rattlesnake season so keep an eye out while you walk the banks.

Crooked River - June 5th, 2008
supplied by: Fly and Field Outfitters
FISHING: Good
After almost two months of instable flows, the Crooked is holding steady at 240 cfs.  Barring any major spikes in water levels the Crooked will fish well.  High-stick nymphing is very effective here.  This time of year caddis pupa, small mayfly nymphs (Pheasant tails, etc.), and midge pupa should be what you tie on under your indicator.

Crooked River - May 27th, 2008
supplied by: Fly and Field Outfitters
FISHING: Fair
Flows on the Crooked River have been fluctuating drastically over the last month as runoff enters Prineville Reservoir from the Ochoco Mountains.  The Mother’s Day caddis hatch is in full swing, but due to cold temps and high flows, the fish are reluctant to respond to surface offerings.  Until the water drops and warms a little, nymphing with small mayfly, midge, and caddis patterns give you your best chance at success.

Crooked River - April 16th, 2008

Extremely high water levels at this time.  Expect high water levels through this spring.  Keep an eye on the flows, look for levels closer to the 400s

Crooked River - April 12th, 2008
supplied by: The Flyfishers Place
FISHING: Poor
At the time of this report, the Crooked was over 500 cfs... to high to fish.  April and early May are often times of high water here as Prineville Resivoir begins to fill up and water is let out of the dam.  Keep an eye on water levels.  50 - 350 cfs is optimal, if the river is above 400 cfs, wait until it drops to head out there. 

The canyon is beautiful and the scenery alone is worth the trip out here.   When dryfly fishing, concentrate on the riffles.  When nymph fishing, concentrate on the deeper holes.


DRIES: Adams, Purple comparadun, BWOs, midges, caddis

NYMPHS: Scuds, midges, caddis larvae, serendipity, brassie, prince, wooly buggers.

Crooked River - April 12th, 2008

FISHING: Good
The water levels below Bowman Dam have finally leveled off to fishable.

Reports are good from the Crooked.  Scuds are a mainstay here.  Try dropping a small midge-like nymph below a scud and hit the riffles and pools.  Traditional nymphs are productive too.

Caddis have been hatching in good numbers providing great dry fly opprotunities.  BWOs and attractor dries will readily fool these trout.

Rattlesnake season is upon us so keep an eye out while you walk the banks.

Crooked River - March 21st, 2008
supplied by: The Flyfishers Place
FISHING: Good
The Crooked is another excellent choice in sring.  I have been getting consistently good reports from the Crooked.  The trout being caught are mainly 8-12" wild rainbows, and occasionally fish over 15 inches.   Of course there are plenty of whities. This river is a good choice in Fall/Winter because snow rarely sticks around in this desert canyon and the sun is out more often than not. 

The canyon is beautiful and the scenery alone is worth the trip out there.  Now that the weather is cooler, the Crooked can fish well all day long.  When dryfly fishing, concentrate on the riffles.  When nymph fishing, concentrate on the deeper holes.

Keep an eye on water levels.  In spring, the levels can fluctuate.  50 - 350 cfs is optimal, if the river is above 400 cfs, wait until it drops to head out there.

Crooked River - February 17th, 2008
supplied by: The Patient Angler
RECORDED:    53 °   FISHING: Fair
  I haven’t been fishing lately, with end of year inventory and tax preparation keeping me busy, and it’s been killing me. The nice weather this weekend was simply too much for me, so I took the opportunity to grab a rod and a hand full of streamers and headed out to the Crooked River with a friend of mine to enjoy an afternoon of our spring like weather. With a trip to Mexico coming up at the end of the month, we decided to cast streamers and work on our cast and retrieve techniques that we would soon be using to catch saltwater game fish in the warm waters of Mexico.

  As we drove across the Bowman Dam, I could see that we weren’t the only anglers suffering from cabin fever and looking to scratch that fishing itch. The angling pressure was pretty heavy in the upper section with anglers spread out along most of the upper campgrounds and pull-offs. So we headed down river to fish some of the lower waters around Castle Rock campground. We worked our streamers through a number of pockets and pools working our way back up the river. The measure of the day was not in the number of fish we caught, but in the beautiful day itself and the solitude the lower river provided us. We did manage to hook a few fish, and the fly of the day was the Ruby Eyed Leech, which has a small double cone head to help get it down and give it great action when stripped.

  We did see a few rises and a few Midges flying around, but nothing I would call a hatch. The few fish we did see rise, were little guys along the edges. Sometimes it’s more fun to go with a bigger, meat & potatoes fly and try to coax a bigger fish from the safety of the underwater structure where he lives. You might not catch as many fish, but they will usually be good fish. Look for subsurface structure, seams, drop-offs, pockets, pools and around large boulders to cover with your streamer.
